Today we visited the annual Medieval Festival at Manor Farm in Ruislip. Manor Farm is a local heritage site where there once stood a Motte & Bailey fort. Nowadays it's home to craft work shops, farmers markets & craft markets.
I found the Adult Education table in the main Barn. Natalie, one of the floristry tutors asked me if I'd like to make a nosegay and never missing a opportunity to make something, I had a go.
A nosegay is a small posy of flowers. In medieval times when they were carried or worn on lapels or around the head to mask unpleasant smells.
I was given some lavender ,a small rose, an ivy leaf and some twine.
Just had to arrange the flowers as I liked and then tie the twine around them.
I love it when I get to take a make home from a trip out.
